My Latest Pull List – August 28th, 2013

Posted by under *like, Comics | Leave a Comment |

Weekly comic books are a big part of my life and below is a list of what I’ll be picking up this Wednesday along with cover artwork and previews courtesy of Comixology’s Pull List app.

Ten new books on my list this week.

  • ASTONISHING X-MEN #66 – Very behind on this series.
  • CAPTAIN MARVEL #15 – An Infinity tie-in. I really can’t wait to read this based on the cover art alone.
  • DOCTOR WHO: PRISONERS OF TIME #8 – An Eighth Doctor story is a rare thing for me as I don’t follow much beyond what’s been on television. Much like this weekend’s BBC special dedicated to this incarnation’s adventures, I’m really looking forward to this.
  • JUSTICE LEAGUE #23Trinity War concludes. I’ll have half of it to read come Wednesday.
  • LAZARUS #3 – I could have easily missed this series and I can’t tell you how happy I am that I decided to give it a shot. It has become one of my favorite titles and will be one of the first books I read on Wednesday.
  • NEW AVENGERS #9 – An Infinity tie-in. Last week’s Avengers tie-in issue was pretty great and I’ve generally been enjoying Jonathan Hickman‘s New Avengers more, so I’m expected a lot from this book.
  • UNCANNY AVENGERS #11 – Another fantastic cover for this week. I often forget how much I like this series between issues.
  • UNCANNY X-MEN #11 – This series has consistently delivered and I expect nothing less here. The current arc has already had some fun twists and turns.
  • WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #35The Hellfire Saga concludes. Of course, I thought that last issue as well.

Check back every week to see what’s on My Latest Pull List and please share your thoughts on these titles and everything you’re reading this week in the comments.

Every year DC seems to position it’s Free Comic Book Day offering as a preview of one of their upcoming events. Previous FCBD comics have focused on series such as Blackest Night and War of the Supermen. This year DC presented the origin of the new character Pandora who first appeared in the final issue of Flashpoint and went on to appeared in the first issues of every title that was part of the New 52. While this tale was indeed an origin story, it proved to be a secret origin that raised more questions than it answered.

Extensive spoilers will follow in our discussion below.
